A Dating App For People Who Went To Private School Launches In Australia

Dating in 2019 should be pretty easy considering there are tons of apps that can be downloaded at the touch of a button.

You've also got the old fashioned way of meeting peple and with the population rising that old adage 'plenty of fish in the sea' couldn't be truer.

But if you've been struggling to find 'The One' because they're just not up to your incredibly high standards, then there might be a saving grace. An app has just launched in Australia that allows only private school alumni to connect with each other.

Because what doesn't scream pretentious like a dating app that singles people out based on their parent's wealth while you were young?

"Toffee is the world's first dating app for people who were privately educated," the website reads.

"We set it up because we know people from similar backgrounds are more likely to stick together. Toffee connects the right people to help them find their match with our sophisticated matching algorithm taking care of all your dating homework.

Your matches will be based on an algorithm which is generated by how much you like certain things such as sport, adventure, the City, the Country and partying.

"The app has innovative personal interest and attributes 'sliders' where the user slides a [cursor] to show how much an interest in, for example, sport is important in their potential partner," the website continues.

"Secondly, whether it's a shared interest in horse racing or rugby, Toffee users can indicate which sporting and social events they are interested in or likely to attend, to further enhance the matching logic."

The video for the app shows very good-looking people all dressed up and enjoying their first date over a lovely bottle of what looks like champagne. Nothing's too good for these lost souls.Credit: Toffee

It's already launched in the UK but now it's been brought to Australia.

Co-creator of Toffee Dating, Lydia Davis, explained to 9Honey why Down Under was the perfect second location to bring the app.

"In the UK, eight per cent of people are privately educated but in Australia that number is around 35 per cent," Ms Davis said.

"We felt that Australia would be the best place for us to roll out to first though as we were inundated with requests for us to launch there."

So if you're sick of getting matches on Tinder and Hinge that just don't get you and your past, then it seems like Toffee is your thing.
